Handguns are a popular choice for personal defense, sport shooting, and hunting. To get the best performance, you need to choose the right type of ammo for your handgun. Shop a wide range of calibers in both centerfire and rimfire for pistols and revolvers.
1. .22 LR
According to Guns.com customers, .22 LR is the most popular ammo type for handguns. It's often used for plinking, small game hunting, and sport shooting. It has a small size and low recoil, making it an excellent choice for beginners and those who want to improve their shooting skills.
However, it's not powerful enough for self-defense and hunting large game.
9mm ammo is the most popular in the centerfire category. It has a moderate recoil, high magazine capacity, and is relatively affordable compared to other centerfire handgun ammo.
3. .45 ACP
.45 ACP is a caliber commonly used for self-defense handguns and trusted by law enforcement. It is especially popular paired with 1911-style pistols. It has a heavy recoil and has a good track record of reliability. However, it has a lower magazine capacity compared to 9mm ammo and is more expensive.
4. .40 S&W
Similar to .45 ACP, .40 S&W is also recommended for self-defense and can also be found in law enforcement firearms. It has a moderate recoil and good stopping power, but it has a lower magazine capacity compared to 9mm ammo and is more expensive.
It's also known for being snappier and more difficult to shoot accurately.
5. .357 Magnum
.357 Magnum ammo is a popular choice for self-defense and hunting, and commonly used in revolvers.
It has a heavy recoil but is effective for hunting medium game.
